, he is, he and joe biden, those only two offices everybody votes for. and he has won. he got over 50%. so he will make his case. i think what is different, what is significantly different, there will be confrontation but i think the first time you're seeing the president move hess campaign organization, we just saw this in the last few days, move it into advocacy on the issues for his agenda during the second term. that's unprecedented. no president's ever been able it do that. and this time it is not with some rinky-dink campaign organization that we've seen in the past. this is the biggest campaign organization ever seen in the united states. 28, 30 million people. those people making the case to their members of congress regardless of party, whether the member is democrat or republican. i think could change the way we look at a lame duck second term presidency because of the power of that grassroots organization. bill: wow! that's a big statement, joe. back to the initial question though. >> sure. bill: blount make as heavy charge though. are there democrats in congress who agree
? vice-president joe biden held a google chat answering questions about the new assault weapons ban proposed by senator dianne feinstein, and biden was asked what would you say to people that you say are infringing on the rights not in the sense of sports or hunting, but the last line of defense of an earthquake or some other natural disaster. well, here is the vice-president's response. >> a shotgun will keep you a lot safer, a double barrel shotgun or assault weapons in somebody's hands doesn't know how to use it. it's harder to use an assault weapon than a shotgun to hit something, if you want to keep people away in an earthquake, buy shotgun shells. >> and since you only have a double barrel shotgun, hopefully only one person coming and only takes two shells to take him out. if you have multiple people coming and buy some shotgun shells probably don't have time to reload and throw them hard enough, you can stop the rest of the attackers. this is shows the i had i don't don'tsy-- idiocy of those who are asking us to give up weapons of self-defense, only one person would minimal a
to vie for the latino votes? >> first of all i know joe biden and i think he's on campaign mode already. we saw a joe biden sprinting through the parade route yesterday. i think he was trying to show us he's a very spry, fit, 70-year-old who will be in very good shape in four years. he became the first vice president to get sworn in by ay ays a latina justice. first vice president to do that. it's a matter of time before we hear joe biden singing or in spanish or reciting irish poetry in spanish because i think joe biden is a very smart politician. realizes how important the latino vote was to this victory. and i think he's prepping himself for a 2016 run. look, he said it at the latina ball the head of the new pack, a hispanic democrat super pac founded and that includes eva longoria and others said those people have been over his house so many times the last three daze they're probably tired of seeing him. i don't think it's coincidence. >> one day we'll take a break and then start and start covering 2016. anna, van, good to see you. >> are you kidding? we've been in 2016 mode for two
